I have owned my condo thru Village Communities for almost 6 years. We outgrew it within 2 years but with the bad economy decided to make it work as long as we could. The HOA fees went up $100 in the years we were there and the lawn care was awful and the ponds always had trash in them and were NOT well kept. Then i got a letter in the mail in Dec 2012 (5 days before xmas!) saying we would have to pay $500 as they were struggling financially. Of the 32 units, 19 were owned by one man who never paid the HOA's and therefore the owners started getting punished for his failure to pay. Then we got letters saying we'd have to pay $800 for the HOA fee in the months of April and August of 2013. We found approved, excited, responsible buyers for our place in January but they were told the bank would not loan to them because of the fact that this one man owned 19 of the units and because a lot of them were rentals. Also, because of the financial situation. I was dumbfounded to know that we had done everything right in finding responsible and approved buyers only to find that we, the owners didnt have the RIGHT to sell our own place that we had bought with 40% down and were taking a huge hit as it was on our selling price. We had already moved out and into another condo (renting) and the owners to be were moved in. Once this all happened they of course wanted nothing to do with the place and are currently seeking out other housing which will leave us with 2 house payments which we cannot afford. I have 4 kids and am sick to think i wont be able to put food on the table because of this situation that should not even be. This place has been nothing but a headache from day 1. The way things are run is terrible. Nobody is ever available and all they do is hound you for more money.
